This was a little video I made in lieu of an acceptance speech for the Queensland Literary Awards. I was really chuffed to win the award for Kumiko and the Shadow Catchers. Having just moved to Edinburgh I was truly sad I couldn't make it to Brisbane for the awards. I was asked to make a video acceptance message and this is what I made. This year, after a terrible decision by the government to stop funding the awards, the QLA's were revived and funded by the businesses, and public of Queensland. As an author this makes me happy to the heart, to know that a community cares about books, and cares about creativity, and the quality of the arts made in their state. So each of the 400 or so images made in 3 days for this clip are my way of saying thanks to all those people for caring.
